    I need a gamepad.....

    Man, I was gonna order the Gravis Xterminator gamepad, but the supplier delayed it 1 month, so I canceld it. So now I'm gonna get a new one. what is a good game pad. I'm playing role playing games so I need like 10 buttons.

    I wanted the Xterminator because it was a combo gamepad and joystick. On the top corner it had a little joystick sticking out and I was so happy...but too bad. :crap:

    So what is a good gamepad? not too expensive though...even better if it has a combo joystick and pad....

    btw, what is USB and How do I tell if I have USB or Gameport?

    You have to check out the Saitek Cyborg 3D Gamepad.

    those gravis xterminator pads are nice....my mate bought one, so he sold me his sidewinder freestyle pro.

    i think the sidewinder is heaps more comfortable but he wanted a pad with a little joystick thingy and more buttons.

    the sidewinder freestyle pro is like the most comfortable controller i've ever used....the only thing is that sensor thing on it is crap but i never use it anyway

    How about the Logitech Wingman Gamepad?? The one with or without the motion sensing technology. It took me a while to get used to it but now I can't see how I can't live without it. Like in games like Motocross Madness 1 or 2.

    It has 11 buttons total. Plus the one without the Motion Sensing thing is $20. Of course that's in the U.S. I don't know where you are from. It's meant for a Gameport but also has an adaptor that fits into the USB slot.

    Take a look at the Interact HammerHead FX game controller. It's very similar to a Playstation Dual Shock pad, and has 2 more buttons. Each analog stick/button/pad has it's own device ID so its highly adaptable. It won't however, work with Dos games, so if you need one that will, you should take a suggestion from some of the ther replies.
    Chew good now or get good later!
